In July 2009, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief during investigatory floor slab removal within the Music Room/ Store, Linen Room and Lobby at Magdalen College, Oxford (NGR: SP 5214 0618). The work was commissioned by Steven Smith of Wright and Wright Architects LLP on behalf of Magdalen College. In the Music Room/Store a short stretch of stone wall/foundation aligned NE-SW was found, and probably relate the medieval infirmary of the Hospital of St. John the Baptist at Oxford. These remains were overlain and abutted by foundations and floor make-up deposits relating to the current college buildings. Only service runs, pipework, modern wall foundations and modern floor make-up deposits were observed in the Linen Store and Lobby. No dating evidence was retrieved during the works.
